I love the little audio clips of Ben Collins talking about different aspects of racing and what not, but I swear it seems like 9 times out of 10, it's him talking about Senna and how he grew up watching him and how he admired him so much and yadda yadda yadda.

Are these clips tied to game mode somehow? Because I've been doing mostly custom races and TT, and I swear I'm gonna go batty if I have to keep hearing this nearly every time I load up a track.

There's a short background clip of a presenter speaking about Jackie Stewart as well. I like it.

Ever since the first game that guy liked to talk a lot. Maybe he should write a book or smth.

You must... He's a great writer. I would say he writes as good as he drives. Even the internal feedback posts from him during development were a joy to read :)

I haven't actually noticed him. I've been listening to the music.

When is that? When you load a race?! I never heard any quotes from Ben, talking about Senna or whatever :(

I heard it while loading rallycross events in career mode, which doesn't quite fit.

Like I said, I think they're a cool little touch to add to the atmosphere of the game. I just wish that either or both of the following could happen: add more lines for more variety, or have some sort of algorithm where if a certain clip plays, it's guaranteed not to play again for like the next five times a clip is triggered, or something like that.

definitivly me !
after hearing the same sentence for 20 or 30 times, it becomes really boring.
Sometimes, it is possible to find the audio file and replace it by a blanck one but i guess it is not that easy with modern games

It's funny you should mention that Senna section. That is doing my head in. So much so that I mute the tv or take my headphones off. I'm just sick and tired of hearing about Senna all the time in motorsport.

It's hardly a problem but if I could disable a sound file on console. I like the others though and they add some nice atmosphere too.

I might be missing something, but why not simply turn down the menu music?

I only seem to get the Senna one, or nothing. It lost it's coolness after the 20th time, and now it just cheapens what initially seemed like a good idea.

The fact that is starts playing in the menu, then starts playing again when the game is loading compounds it!

I wonder if it's tied to a particular variable... Because I spend a lot of time on TT mode, at a particular circuit, and tend to stick to a handful of cars.

If it's supposed to be random, then it ain't working right.

By now I've had my share of this more than enough... would be nice to here another quote (or another part of it...)

You guys know that it's a song, right ?
These kind of sample is very common in music.
When you listen to music, with some lyrics, you hear the same again and again right ?
Just turn the music volume to 0 and listen to whatever you want.

Well there's a distinction between hearing it and paying attention to it. I consider it to be part of the background score, so I'm not doing the latter (anymore).

I turned the menu music off because of that line. My first thought was that it was a really cool idea to hear people talk about racing legends and so on, but after hearing it a ridiculous amount of times in a couple of days I had to turn it off.
When something starts to annoy me, there's no way for me to stop paying attention to it. Too bad, the music is actually really good

..Do you guys also complain about repetitive sounds in FPS games when someone gets hit? :rolleyes:

Really, just stop paying attention or turn the music down and play your own, it won't hurt anyone to do that. (unless you play it really loud, in that case the neighbours might mind, but probably not as much as the car sounds coming from your apartment. :p)

That would be like complaining about the engine revving sounds when we hit the gas :cool:
I just wished more of these audio interviews would've been added, it's a really cool idea!

That hype about Senna is annoying... Why not choosing Lauda, Clark, Prost, Stewart or any other fantastic driver seen in F1... I'm not sure that dude studied Senna as much as he say he did. He said he was the "perfectionist", it's not the memory I have of him.

Am I the only one who hears other speeches as well? There's one about how to properly tackle Eau Rouge, another about feeling of danger vs urge to win and a couple more.
Or have I been playing PC2 too much in the last days and I've ended up starting dreaming about that all?

I found it very nice and soothing the first few times, but then it got annoying. Why? It overlaps the epic game music!

I'm not saying it's not in the game, but I never heard anything else than Senna :)

Yes, I usually ignore the announcements as background noise, but that always makes me go "wait, what?!". I thought it was just me naturally listening more closely to stuff in my own language...

I'm going to switch the music off in the hope that the talking stops :) like you said it's something different the first 2 times, after that it starts to irritate :D I appreciate the idea, but it's really not for me.

It's a shame because the menu music is really good in this game but the talking does get old quick.
